Houssem Belabed – Clubhouse Manager
At the very young age of 13, I started working in a bazaar shop in Medina, Tunisia, selling souvenirs to tourists. In this role, I met many international guests from all nationalities, which opened my eyes to the world out there. Four years later I began working in hospitality, as a waiter, and fell in love with the job.
My Scottish wife and I lived in Tunisia for several years, then we decided to move to Scotland. I began working at Gleneagles 10 years ago and I only planned to be here for a year, but the passion and love I have for the job, has kept me here for a decade!
Synika Lewis - Receptionist
My Journey to Gleneagles started a year and a half ago at a careers fair at Derby University where I met one of the team, Richard Patten, who was there to recruit eager young adults for position in Food & Beverage roles.
I was one of the lucky candidates and came to Gleneagles to work in the main fine dining restaurant, The Strathearn. After my six months, I decided to challenge myself with a new role and join the Front of House team.
I have always had a love for the hospitality industry and working as a receptionist at The Gleneagles Hotel has been rewarding; it has allowed me to showcase my talent and my personality while delivering exceptional customer service. Through this drive, I was a finalist in the AIRC Receptionist of the Year Competition.
Marguerite Courtney – General Manager, Glenmor
I’ve spent 15 very quick years at Gleneagles. I started as an Assistant Housekeeping Manager and, after a couple of years, was promoted to Executive Housekeeper.
Following a St. Julian’s Scholarship in 2012, I was promoted to my present position of General Manager Glenmor, and I now look after five departments, 53 homes and 2,500 Owners!
I enjoy working with a luxury product, having the freedom to make decisions, having access to a generous budget, and being the leaders in our field.
Christian Gleeson – Painter Apprentice
I first started at Gleneagles through a programme at school called ‘Career Ready’, which connects school leavers with mentors, internships and employment placements, to prepare them for the world of work.
I first started in housekeeping which gave me a foot in the door, then I was offered a part time job in the maintenance team where I did mostly painting, and just before last Christmas I was offered a full time apprenticeship for painting and decorating. It’s been a great opportunity and is a great place to work.
I chose Gleneagles because it has been the best learning and working opportunity I have received and I enjoy the work place.
